The season might have been cut short for Maria Sharapova duo to numerous injuries, but she invariably found a way to get the better of them and hit the court again.

Following her runner-up appearance at the Wimbledon Championships, the Russian sidelined for almost four months due to a leg injury. She, later, returned to the circuit at the Wuhan Open, but the injury continued to bother her, compelling her to pull out midway through her first-round match.

However, 28-year-old didn’t lose hope as she managed to compete at the year-ending Championships in Singapore. To the surprise of all, she qualified for the semi-finals with an unbeaten run in the group stage, before losing out on a hard-fought match to Petra Kvitova, thereby signing off her year with a decent 37-10 record.

“It was frustrating because you train and want to see some sort of reward – and by reward I don’t mean wins, I mean just going out there and seeing how you translate your work onto the field,” Sharapova was quoted as saying by WTA Tennis.

“I didn’t have expectations coming into the WTA Finals. Of course it’s always tough to sit down after a match and say you’re happy, especially after you lose it,” she added. “But I think it would be quite unprofessional of me to not take a lot of positives out of this week.

“I think there’s a lot to look forward to in the off-season and next year.”
